Are you on any medications/birth control?

OB GYN Doctor: Dr.Ashwini Joshi, OB/GYN (Doctor) replied 8 years ago

Hello,

There could be a number of reason's for the discharge after the periods are over.The fact that you had a recent examination rules out major causes for inter menstrual spotting like a polyp or cervicitis.

Sometimes there may be a discharge around ovulation.But as you are trying to conceive the one cause of a discharge could be implantation bleeding of pregnancy.

The way to find it would be to get either a HPT done around your actual expected period or get a blood pregnancy test done.

If this is negative it could be a progesterone lack because of which you are getting the brownish discharge.If this persists I would advice you to rule out Chlamydial cervicitis by testing a swab.

All the best.

Please feel free to ask for any clarifications.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
